Hey,Dan. Nice to see you're still floating around :) Literally! Always feel relaxed when listening to your music. Short and sweet :) Peace,Ricky.
You had me worried there for a moment Dan! I know there's been a bit if disaffection with this site lately but the thought of it minus Dan M is a depressing one. And if ever there was a track to prove my point it's this one - hauntingly beautiful with some spine tingling chord changes. Your tracks always make me want to reach for the keyboard and emulate them. Needless to say I seldom begin to succeed. Superb.
Wow! Blown me away with those chord movements. Excellent.. Skies
the limit with this piece. Nicely done..
ahhh, you do ambient right! Glad to hear the title's something of a misnomer, I'd miss ya buddy. For some reason this is bringing visions of a slow dance on ice skates...not that I can dance, or skate, or do much of anything slow but it's makin' a pretty scene in my head right now with your accompaniment. Thanks!
A beautiful and restful piece Dan, you took me on an ethereal journey. Enjoyed and rated, Gibbo
Some sweet chord progressions in here Dan. Melancholic and thoughtful vibes washing over the listener. :)
Hi Dan, When I get my full internet usage back, I am going to have a wonderful time listening to many artists here on mp3u, this is a terrific track Dan, lush textures and pure tones, there is a very "filmic" vibe here, I love how the sounds reach out to you, the synths are marvelous!
Wonderful to hear a 'real' piece of music...this just stands out like a flower in the sand. So peaceful...wish it would go on for much longer. Pure class! Thank you for giving the DL...taken gladly with thanks! keith
Hey Dan! Nice one! love the whole emotion, suspence and mystery that this work of art captures. This has a great movie feel to it, like that sad bit of the film where you have a lump in your throat lol. Absolute mesmerizing slice of production man. HUGE!!! vote from me, enjoyed it thoroughly. Peace E.S. : ) O AND THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS ON MY STUFF, CHEERS!!!
Just beautiful - I adore your music Dan! easy vote from me C:)
What a treat I get to hear a new one from you. One sec let me just kick back and take it in, Ahhh beautiful my friend. You're music takes me to another place... I love that about it. This is so what I need.... NOW THIS IS A GOOD DAY!!!
Never say that!
I hope you compose until the sun don't shine, until I take my last breath and beyond.
I love it Dan.
I'll just ignore what you stated. This is beautiful and calming. I wonder what prompted you go to your synth and compose this? Dan, you must be full of these lush places inside your head when you have time and space for peace. Your work is something I go to to find understanding and solitude. You do it every time. I'm a Dan Michaelson junkie!
Yeah yeah yeah I wish I had a dollar every time I heard that LOL. Anyone who writes music (such as us on mp3u) never really give it up because it was the writing that drove us here in the 1st place. Nice work Dan (talking about the music now). Got some sweet little builds and then moves away into little bits of darkness with some scatterings of majesty and melancholy. Good work dude. Thumzup
I sure hope there is never a "Last one" ..as in a last track from you, Dan...masterfully ambient textures that flow, seamlessly from sound to sound. The sense of isolation haunts this but it is not a fearful thing you have created, it has light flitting through in beams and transitional notes...tension abounds, but enough optimism is present too...that IS mastery of the art...so enjoyed this. It may not be guitar twanging and sanging that you had hoped to explore, but this is GRAND in its meandering repose.
Nice drifting track Dan very orchestral and relaxing. Well worth the wait. love the electronic voice. A wee gem buddy. And I bet it is not the last one...........Love your stuff it makes me stop and ponder on life.....................Thanks for the d/l...David
Howdy! A Southern California artist living in Texas. Go figure. Make em up as I go along. Charter member of the pray and play theory of music...;-). I have been extremely fortunate to have some of the best artists on this site take some of my musical creations and take them to "a whole nother level" . The following artists have been kind enough to do this.
Essence, Saphfire, Dawn Sinclair, Carol Sue Kirkpatrick, Amy Caldwell, Vince Fedele (aka Riddle, A Brighter Day, Vin), AndyF (aka Andrew Foyston), Tony Miller, James (Andy) Oakwood, Joseph Rodriguez, Lodato (aka Rich Lodato), Peter Vines, AntonH, Boojolay (David Smith) and the irrepressable David Joel Carter
This just in! Dan Michaelson has nothing special going on in his life. It is pretty much Standard Operating Procedure with a few moments of ecstacy and terror thrown in so he doesn't get too bored with the whole thing!
This piece is as most of what I hear from Dan. Ambient by nature on the borderline of new age but really ambient as the passion involved is so thought provoking. The quality of sounds and just enough of structure to keep you guessing where it's going next at the same time, the flow doesn't keep you waiting but going along for the journey. That's magic. Dan has that aplenty and just about anyone wh
Essence is a very talented lady from MP3 Unsigned who I have reviewed once or twice, notably on Towers Are Gone (July 2008) a marked departure from her usual style, and her first (I think) collaboration with Dan Michaelson, an American keyboard player and songwriter. He supplied the music and she supplied the vocals and lyrics and - despite it being in a genre I don't normally care for - I found
What a beauty music...I can see the princess on his room...and walking over all of her palace...a beauty, and magical descriptive music...rated!
Dan Michaelson describes himself as "truly an amatuer". For reasons none other than he is not fully conversant with the mechanics of musical theorem. I suspect as a result of that some people feel the need to explain themselves and somehow belittle themselves when faced with the critics imaginary lack of theory beating stick. What i mean by this is that nobody should call themselves an amatuer, ci
